    I've always considered this to be a classic Larry quote...

    Happy Anniversary, ZooTV Sydney shows!

    The entire encore is the greatest thing I've ever seen - what a performance, and what a rollercoaster of emotions. That version of With Or Without You is head and shoulders above any other, IMO; I wish they would play it that way again! Utter perfection. I still can't believe the notes he hits on CHFIL.

    U2 dreams

    I had a U2 nightmare the night before last. I was going to see a show in Manchester, which is somewhere I've never been in real life. I turned up early in the morning to join the GA queue, and was quite relieved to find it, as I had no idea where it would be. Even better, there were only 20-odd people ahead of me! We had to wait outside for a couple of hours until the building opened, like in London. Then just as they let us inside, I suddenly noticed that everyone had a number on their hand except me - I'd forgotten I needed to get one! So I had to go right to the back of the queue, losing hundreds of precious places. Arrrgghh! That's when I woke up and found it wasn't real anyway. Jeez, the tour is over - why am I still having anxiety dreams about the GA line?!

    Happy Anniversary, ZooTV Sydney shows!

    Me too, I had to buy another one! Yes, best version ever. That entire sequence of Dirty Day / Bullet / RTSS / Streets is absolutely mindblowing.

    Happy Anniversary, ZooTV Sydney shows!

    The Sydney video is one of the first things I bought while investigating U2 in the late '90s, and it very much made me the fan that I am. Best tour ever! ❤️ Everything about that show is perfect beyond description, which is incredible considering the pressure they were under. For a while I used to watch it every night before bed. (Well... part of it. You can probably guess which part, haha.)

    I assume you have to resubscribe in order to receive the downloads, since it's all part of next year's subscription package.

    I resubscribed early so I can get the downloads in January instead of waiting. (I might have left it until the end of the year, but I wasn't sure how long the option to resub early would remain available.)

    OMG, an actual CD (and photo book)?! I was all ready to hurl something at my computer screen if it turned out to be another vinyl gift. Thank you!!

    MacPhisto fansite

    I still need to update some other parts of the website, but you can now enjoy every single MacPhisto speech in text, audio or video form here (with references explained, if you need it). Thanks so much to all the streamers and tapers and filmers for letting us hear these! I'd love to know which ones were your favourites. If I really had to choose, I think I'd go with Philadelphia 1 from North America and Madrid 1 from Europe. To the band, Marc, and everyone else who helped to make this happen - I can never thank you enough for what you have given me over the past few months. Enough joy to last a lifetime. ❤️ Now I can officially stop whining about the lack of MacPhisto references on every tour!

    Personal U2 show charts calculator

    I've now heard 81 different songs live! Vertigo is my most-heard song - 13 times, even though I've only seen 12 shows, haha.

    Berlin Live Thread #U2eiTour

    The happiness derived from this horned gentleman is quite often the only thing that prevents the bastards grinding me down, so it's very appropriate that this song is now associated with him. ❤️

    Favourite tour of the last 4 years?

    Not a straightforward choice for me. In terms of the overall production, I think IE was the best. JT is easily the one I enjoyed most in person (that indoor stage & screen layout just didn't work at all for someone as short as me). But EI had MacPhisto, which means more to me than anything! So... *shrug*
